Jamie says: "This substantial soup makes a brilliant weekday lunch, but could totally hold its own as a main meal. It freezes well, so make a batch, portion up and stash in the freezer." See method

  1. Trim and finely slice the spring onions and celery, place in a large pan on a medium-low heat with 1 tbsp oil and cook for 10 mins, or until softened. Stir in the curry paste and cook for a further 2 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, scrub the butternut squash, then coarsely grate on a box grater (there’s no need to peel it), discarding any seeds and stalk. Pick the coriander leaves and set aside, then finely chop the stalks and add to the pan with the grated squash.
  3. Stir in the rice and stock, bring to the boil, then simmer with the lid on for 10-15 mins, or until the rice is cooked. Add the spinach and cook for 2 mins, then add the peas and cook until piping hot.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls, sprinkle over the coriander leaves and serve.
